The wait is over.
Hot Topic has recently announced that Bendy and the Ink Machine toys and merchandise will be coming to their stores in the near future. However, in their advertisement, they are not specific about what kind of merchandise will be coming to their store. On Hot Topic’s website, there is a teaser video revealing the news, but it does not give away any information such as a release date.
However, the news had already been released on Gamejolt that there would be Bendy and the Ink Machine merchandise coming right around the corner. This information was shown back in May, so fans had been aware of this for quite a while. This teaser, however, did not say that the merchandise would be coming to Hot Topic, so that is new information for everyone.
The teaser in May had shown us that TheMeatly Games had partnered with PhatMojo in order to bring us “high quality Bendy toys and apparel to local retail and online stores.” From this, we can gather that there will most likely be clothing items, collectibles, and possibly plush toys. It seems that we will have to wait to see what kind of merchandise will be available on the day of its release.
This is news that is thrilling for many Bendy and the Ink Machine fans, because this is something that has been highly requested for quite some time now. Many fan-made versions of Bendy merchandise, such as plush toys, are already being produced. However, it is nice to see that there will finally be official merchandise releasing for the game.
Back when Five Nights at Freddy’s was at its highest point, its merchandise was some of the biggest-selling items at Hot Topic. Now, it seems that Bendy and the Ink Machine will be taking its place as the next big indie horror game being advertised and sold at Hot Topic.
Will Bendy and the Ink Machine be able to keep up with the standard that FNAF has established at stores such as Hot Topic?
